Gary Polonsky explores botanical subjects in his exhibition at TAG Gallery, Leaves, Rocks, Flowers.

In recent years Polonsky has investigated and expanded the various facets of his art practice via engineering techniques, sculpting, and painting. Lush colors and large, dramatically shaped wire mesh “canvases” allow for flexibility in each piece, enabling the work to reach out from the wall towards the viewer.

As with his previous three-dimensional series (the food series, the botanical series, stamps, the solar system), Polonsky maintains an alluring attraction to the natural world. Leaves, Rocks, Flowers encourages intimacy; asking the viewer to observe and gaze closely, see the intricacies, beauty, and the wonder of our world.

Artist Spotlight: Laura Fisher - Passage

Laura Fisher, Control Line, Oil on canvas, 20 x 45" 
Laura Fisher investigates motion through the landscape in Passage, her debut show at TAG. Her colorful oil paintings are virtual road trips, capturing the spatial and temporal essence of travel.

Sweeping curves and strong geometric forms come together to create cohesive yet enigmatic terrain. Some shapes push forward and some fall back, moving the viewer through imagined hills and valleys, along roads and across bridges. Subtle gradients and dramatic chromatic shifts evoke the passage of time across these undulating panoramas.
Laura Fisher, Intraurban, Oil on canvas, 20 x 45" 
The colors of Southern California permeate Fisher’s current body of work. Having recently moved from Michigan to Los Angeles, she has embraced the hues of her new home, updating her palette to incorporate the warmth and light of the area.

The moods of the paintings range from pastoral to energetic, and the compositions draw from the influences of the Cubists, the Precisionists, and mathematics. Simple titles give modest clues to the pieces’ real-world influences but leave broad room for personal interpretation. Fisher’s gift for creating evocative visual puzzles challenges viewers to fit together the pieces of their own travel memories as they explore her dynamic and imaginative landscapes.

The exhibition runs through Saturday, July 7, 2018
Opening Reception: Saturday, June 16, 5-8 p.m.
Artist Talk: Saturday, June 30, 3 p.m.
